$15 to $30

Jul. 30, 2004: SOOS CREEK Artist Series #1 Columbia Valley 2001 (92 points, $27)

Ripe and generous, with a gamy edge to the rich currant, plum and berry flavors, weaving a smoky note through the long, round finish. Impressive for its depth. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2006 through 2012. 600 c —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 23, 2004: DOMAINES SCHLUMBERGER Riesling Alsace Les Princes Abbés 2000 (91 points, $16)

This is lush and though it starts out off-dry, the racy structure emerges midpalate, driving the floral, peach and mineral flavors to a long, dry conclusion. It really sings on the finish today, with a long smoky aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. Tasted —Bruce Sanderson

Jul. 13, 2004: CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE Merlot Columbia Valley 2001 (89 points, $16)

Smooth, generous style emphasizes distinctly minty, herbal overtones to the cherry and spice flavors. It all lingers nicely. Drink now through 2008. 178,000 cases made. Smart Buys. From Washington. —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 03, 2004: J Pinot Gris Russian River Valley 2003 (89 points, $18)

A lovely wine, elegantly styled yet vibrant, with bright aromas of pear, melon and lightly toasted almonds. Balances a rich texture with crisp acidity, ending on a fresh and lively note. Drink now. 8,400 cases made. Smart Buys. From California. —James Laube

Jun. 30, 2004: LEONILDO PIEROPAN Soave Classico 2002 (89 points, $17)

Subtle aromas of peaches, honey and limes. Medium- to full-bodied, with dried fruit and a lively, fresh aftertaste. Delicious. Always one of the best Soaves. Drink now. 20,830 cases made. Smart Buys. From Italy. —James Suckling
